BENTLEY RUMBLE The Second Chance (2004)

The first time I met Reggie Hamilton we were both drunk.  Not fall-down, can't-string-two-words-together drunk, but what used to be known as 'amusingly drunk' in Hollywood back in the 1930s.  It was perfectly acceptable to be a lush back then as long as you were discreet about it and did nothing to tarnish the squeaky clean image of whichever major studio you happened to be contracted to at the time.  It was particularly acceptable if, like me, you also happened to be the talented, up-and-coming young director of a popular picture called That Hopkins Girl which had recently netted MGM something in the vicinity of two million Depression-era dollars.
